Sean Miller and the Arizona Wildcats added a huge commitment from 4-star point guard Justin Simon on Tuesday.

He is ranked as the country’s second-best point guard prospect, the second-best overall prospect in the state of California and the seventh-best overall prospect in nation in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Simon is from Temecula Valley High School in Temecula, California. He is ranked as the country’s sixth-best point guard prospect, the fourth-best prospect in the state of California and the 29th-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Simon chose the Wildcats over offers from the rival Arizona State Sun Devils, Florida Gators, Indiana Hoosiers and Texas Longhorns, among others.
